It’s a myth that an entire nation is built upon the strength of one man. The United States of America was built on the strength of the thousands of men who fought for our freedom and the thousands of men who fought and died for the freedoms we hold dear.
We’re also told that our nation is built upon the strength of a man named Andrew Jackson. This guy is actually the first leader of the Confederate States of America. He was the only leader who was willing to openly fight against the US government and the US military, and he did it with his own personal army. His name doesn’t get much more patriotic than that.
It seems as though the original title of our game was, “Man’s Sky Colossus.” But for whatever reason, people were upset by the name choice. They also liked the name “Colossus,” which is actually more fitting because the colossus was a real American soldier. Colossi were the giant flying machines used by the US military, though technically they were just large aircraft. All the colossi were named after a country or a city in the US.
Well, it is the name of our first character, but not the actual first one. The first name of the first character in our game is Colt, which is the name of a real American soldier in World War II, and the name of the first American soldier in World War II that got captured by the Germans. But for whatever reason, people still like the name of our game’s first character, and a lot of people are still upset that our game’s name was changed.
I don’t have any problem with the naming of our game, but I do have a problem with the name itself. The first colon is not a letter, it is a word. As such, it is not in the English alphabet, and as such, it is not in the dictionary. That makes it a very awkward name for a game, and when you are talking about a game, you want to make sure you do not speak in acronyms.
I don’t know if you are aware, but you can actually pronounce the name of our game, or at least the part of it that is in the English alphabet. If you are not, I would suggest that you do. The first colon is technically a letter, but it is pronounced “kroos” because it is a letter that is pronounced by humans as “c”.
The colossus is the largest star in the constellation of Aquila, which is actually an ancient name for the constellation itself. Just like colossus is a small, but important part of the name of our game, Aquila is a small, but important part of the name of the constellation. They both refer to the same thing, so it is worth repeating.
We call the first colon an “A” because it is an alpha, which is the Latin word for the first letter in the alphabet. It is also the first letter of the word Aquila. The second colon is pronounced koos because that is the way the English word “koos” is pronounced.
